Hello everyone! Im new here. Well first off Im a medical assistant and Im interested in going for LPN. Here's the thing I went to college and got a few credits. I never graduated because I had a few medical problems that forced me to put my schooling on hold. Well fast forward a few years and I would like to go to school for LPN.
I would like to go to Medgar Evers College (New York). Has anyone ever been to this school? How would I go about becoming an LPN? I know I would have to do pre-req classes. I dont have that many credits from my other school unfortunately ( like 20 credits)
What are your suggestions? Im not interested in becoming a nurse at this time. I would like to see how it is as an LPN first
. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

For those of you who gave me advice, I thank you very much for taking the time in helping me out. Its very much appreciated. And yes, I know what an LPN is. LPN is a 2 year program,....RN is 4 years. Thought I would try LPN first and see how I like it.
Actually, Danny, many full-time LPN programs are between 12-18 months in length, and 2 years when the programs are part-time. Of course, this depends on what area of the country you live in, and whether part-time programs are still readily available to interested students. Also, a RN can be hospital/diploma based-2 or 3 years, associate degree (A.S.)-2 years, or bachelor's degree (B.S./B.S.N.)-4 years. Just my
Have a great day! :spin:
